One such example is the opening riff of late 1960s soul hit "Stop Her On Sight (S. S.)" by Edwin Starr which Hill uses certain distinct elements of, as can be heard in the opening of this song.
Hill's first solo singles were from two 1997 movie soundtracks: "The Sweetest Thing" from Love Jones and a cover of Frankie Valli's 1967 song "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" for Conspiracy Theory.
na lang ang aming iibigin Masarap magmahal ang bakla Ohh kay sarap...
Mga tambay lang kami sawa sa babae May mga babaeng manloloko Pineperahan lang kami Kaya ngayon bakla na lang ang aming iibigin Masarap magmahal ang bakla Ohh kay sarap...
The song is a warning from Hill to African-American men and women caught in "the struggle".
Both the women who "[try to] be a hard rock when they really are a gem", and the men who are "more concerned with his rims, and his Timbs, than women", are admonished by Hill, who warns them not to allow "that thing" to ruin their lives.
The song is taken from her debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
The song won Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song at the 1999 Grammy Awards on February 24, 1999.
"Doo Wop (That Thing)" debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the tenth song in the chart's history to do so, and the first debut single to do so.
"Doo Wop", released in 1998 as her first solo song from her debut album, was a major success.
It became the 10th single to debut at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, and the first by a rap artist. On Billboard's R&B Singles chart, it reached #2 for three weeks in November 1998, held out of the top spot by "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here" by Deborah Cox. The success of "Doo Wop" and the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album established Hill as a success outside of her group, The Fugees.
